Mark Reynolds, PostDoctoral Investigator

My research explores the role of complex microbial communities in natural and anthropogenic ecosystems that interface with nutrient cycling or applied processes. As a Postdoc in the Ruff lab funded by DOE, I will identify drivers for the formation and degradation of necromass in soil and how it persists or forms in relation to differential biogeochemistry. Linking necromass contribution to natural organic matter pools can improve terrestrial models and improve our understanding of carbon sequestration. My hobbies include music and sports and I have an appreciation for photography and the outdoors.
